Abstract

Learning in design is a phenomenon that has been observed in design practice by many researchers. The observation that designers learn is supported by protocol studies in design that experienced designers can reach satisfactory design solutions more effectively than novice/naive designers. That there was no comprehensive model or theory of learning in design to explain the phenomenon was identified by Sim. Hence a need was raised to develop a comprehensive model of learning in design that can describe the phenomenon and therefore serve as a basis to develop effective and efficient design support system(s).
